Ubuntu :: Half Gnome-panel In Gnome 2.3 And High Resolution?
May 12, 2010
I've installed Ubuntu 10.4 and the gnome-panel appears half, as you can see in the attached picture, if I try resolutions over 1024x768.If I kill the gnome-panel and it restarts, or if I change its properties, it became OK, but in startup it appears like the image.I've tried other Gnome 2.3 based distributions and occurs the same issue. With Gnome 2.28 it doesn't occurs. Then ii seems a gnome 2.3 problem.
I've managed to ALT-RIGHT-click-add some launchers to the top gnome-panel. When i now click on a launcher the gnome-panel crashes(?) and reappeares, but the program starts without problems. If i do this two times in a row (1 sec diff or so) the gnome-crash screen appears and i've got to log out although all the programs are still running without any problems.
dmesg shows this: [14460.034820] gnome-panel: segfault at 18 ip 0000003810fc05df sp 00007fffcaae4c30 error 4 in libgtk-3.so.0.0.10[3810e00000+3fb000]
I recently bought a second monitor and I had this set up perfectly fine with two panels on my primary display and one on my secondary. I've now gone away for the weekend (leaving the monitor) and I went to turn on my laptop and it didn't work.
When I login to a gnome session (or indeed a failsafe gnome session) I just got two horizontal white bars (where the panels would be). I switch to a terminal, login and run top and see that gnome-panel is on 100%. Running 'killall gnome-panel' does nothing (tried a few times).
I've had to install xfce4 just to type this message. Is there any way I can 'reset' gnome-panel or any other fix? Or even a workaround would be nice. I'm on 9.10 by the way. I am going to upgrade at some point but its not really an option yet.
Regarding the gnome-panel in Ubuntu (64 bit).... I discovered some time ago that I wasn't the only one who routinely (every login) had their gnome-panel appear butchered, for which Alt-F2 then 'killall gnome-panel' would easily fix.
Having become impatient with this over the past 8 months, I decided I would automate the process and so cofiguring the startup applications seemed like a perfectly logical choice to me. Turns out I was wrong. After adding 'killall gnome-panel' to the startup applications not only does the panel fail to load altogether now, but Alt-F2 doesn't even work.
I tried Ctl-Alt-F1 and working with the graphics-free mode thinking I could somehow navigate to the startup apps config file and edit it, but I don't know where it is or how to edit it without logging in as root and I certainly don't know of any 'root password'.
So I just updated my IdeaPad to Natty and played around with Unity. The performane was absolutely unbearable so I installed Unity2D from the software center. Now when I start the session everything seems to be fine at first. Whenever I move the mouse over the panel though it seems to switch to my old gnome-panel from the "Classic" session (with some missing icons). When I move the mouse over that panel again it switches back to the Unity panel style. What is going on? Can I fix this somehow? I will have to use the classic session until I get a working consistent behavior
I recently upgraded to Ubuntu 10.10 and I am experiencing an ultra high memory usage of the gnome-settings-daemon of 2GB after suspend! Killing and restarting the daemon solves the issue. Anybody else with this behavior?
I am trying to get rid of the gnome panel shadow in ubuntu 11.04(classic, not using unity). I know that I can get rid of it using compiz but I do not want to use that. I suppose my question would be, where is the "panel-shadow.png" file located that I can edit and make transparent? I found it before but cannot for the life of me now.
How would I go about making my top Panel transparent? I know how to do the basic variation, but things like the Clock, Notification Area, and Gnome menu aren't.How would I make my panel transparent, almost like Mac OS X's?
I was wondering if it's possible to remove the gnome panel, I prefer the use of dock-lets and I don't have any use for the panel but when I remove my panel with apt en reboot my computer he seems to be unable to load gnome and I only get a terminal(or KDE desktop when installed) I didn't find another topic on this so I was wondering if it's possible to remove and if, how to achieve it.
I have Ubuntu with a Gnome GUI. When I tried to add a third panel to the left side, it didn't respond for a moment then two panels appeared on that side and all the panels froze. Whenever I log out, shut down or restart, it tells me that Panel is not responding and does not give me the option of closing it. The whole left side of the top and bottom panels are blank now. I can't use the menus or my quick launch icons. When I right click on any of the panels nothing comes up. My other user account and my root profile work fine, (but use different themes), and I can use my account with KDE or XFCE.
Basically looking for a scrolling RSS feeder for Gnome panel. I remember having one a few years back and can no longer locate it. I would prefer Gnome panel, however, that wouldn't necessarily be a necessity...just preference.
I have ubuntu 10.4 with compiz fusion and emerald themer, and I would like to know if there's any good way to download themes not only for the window decorations but also for the panels. I use cairo dock opengl on the bottom but I do use the top panel and I would like to be able to download some cool themes for it and not just the limited customization found on the panel properties
Fresh install of 10.10 and when I increase the size of the top panel to 30 pixels it changes colors. So I ignored it and installed Faenza icons and used the radiance them, yet it persists and it also won't allow full transparency. I saw a very intense work around involved finding certain files, but that seemed unneeded is there another way.
The other day I kind of messed up my panel and accidentally removed the exit icon from the upper right corner (in the panel). So I tried to restore the panel using this command:
It did the trick and restored the panels, however instead of saying my user name, it said root (again the upper right corner, in the panel). I realized this might be because I ran the command with sudo but if I didn't it would not succeed. AND when I reboot, it returns to its' messed up state.
I have been running ubuntu 10.10 on a old laptop for a while but have started to get tired of the high resource usage. I installed xfce via xubuntu-desktop package and all worked well but the menu. It is the Xfce menu not the customized xubuntu panel and i really dont much like it.
I have one profile on my Ubuntu machine that I want to eliminate the gnome panel from. When I use the gconf-editor I can change the panel key but it has no effect on my profile. If I set the key as the default it kills the panel on all my other profiles but not on the one I set it from. Anyone have any bright ideas on this?
I suppose I could just auto hide the one left offending panel but I truly wanted to get rid of it entirely. It is irritating having it pop up when I get near the edge of the screen constantly.
I have tried 2 methods to add to the gnome panel, but it isn't working for the banshee music player.If I drag/drop on there it doens't take.If I try to right click and add to panel and select it from the menu it also does not show up.
I changed the resolution in Gnome to something that my monitor cannot recognize. However, I can get into the shell, and am wondering if their is a way to change the Gnome resolution via the shell commands.
Why gnome would make my resolution so much bigger than it actually is (2x my native). I can actually use the other half of my screen. I have to scroll over to the left half, and then I can work like normal. If I wanted to have a black screen, I can drag the courser over to the far right and have my screen be entirely black. I cannot open anything in the black part of the screen.
